It’s my body, I can dress how I want to: that’s Bella Thorne’s motto! While the 17-year-old actress pushes the limits with her fashion, critics have been attacking her, saying that she dresses too risqué for her age — and now she’s firing back!
Bella Thorne, 17, has always stood up to bullies, and this is no different. HollywoodLife.com spoke exclusively to The Duff star on April 2, where she was named the brand ambassador as the National Park Service and the Find Your Park campaign! So, what does she have to say who those thinks she’s not appropriately dressed? Watch our interview.
Bella Thorne Defends Sexy Outfits
“I think it is [bullying]. People are constantly judging you, telling you what you should, what you shouldn’t be wearing , what you should look like, what you should be doing at your age . . . but you know what, they don’t know, because they’re not my age,” Bella told HollywooodLife.com exclusively at the #FindYourPark Campaign Launch on April 2.
Bella, who definitely is a risk taker when it comes to fashion wants the critics to know — she’s human!
“They’re not me. They’re not 17. I’m going to make mistakes, I’m gonna live my life,” she said. “I might wear some shorter shorts that usual sometimes, but like, I’m a teenager, you can’t hate me for that.”
We definitely don’t hate you, Bella!
Bella Stands Up To Bullies
The actress, who just landed a new role in Famous in Love on ABCFamily also commented on the way she always stands up to bullies — and that it needs to stop.
“I was bullied when iI was younger a lot, I’m still bullied a lot now,” she added. “There’s nothing else to say about it, but that it’s awful, it’s terrible. I know what I went through and I know what kids my age are going through and it makes me upset.”
